The iPad mini is the little brother of the “big” iPad. Measuring 20 x 13,5 cm, the iPad mini from Apple fits comfortably in your hand and still offers the variety of apps that you are used to from the iPad 4. Working with the iPad mini is very comfortable due to its low weight and small footprint. You can easily read e-mails or surf the web with the small tablet in your hand for a long time and still don't have the feeling that your arm is getting "lame", as was the case with the large iPad and its predecessors. The dimensions show that Apple Lossless Audio CODEC (ALAC), thought when developing the device, because you can hold the iPad mini in one hand even with small hands and operate it with your thumb.

Color variants and equipment variety - black and white painting

There are several models of the iPad mini. On the one hand, the customer can choose between the white and the black design. Once you have made a decision here, you can still choose whether you only want the wifi version or the version with wifi and 4G. And finally, there is still the choice between the different sizes of flash memory. Apple currently offers 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. Most users will get there with 16 GB, but those who want to take a lot of films, photos or music with them will be better served with the larger variants.

Technical details of the small Apple tablet

Some interesting electronic parts can be found inside: For example, the new A5 chip from Apple. This offers enormous computing speed and also makes it possible to play complex 3D games very smoothly on the iPad mini. The RAM is unfortunately small at 512 MB, but this amount of RAM is sufficient for normal use. Alone Apps, which are very graphics-intensive, load every now and then. The [iPad 4->ipad] has 1 GB of RAM in comparison and is probably the better choice for real “gamers”.

It gets interesting again with the battery life of the iPad mini, because here you can expect a significant increase in practice compared to the iPad 4 and the [iPhone 5-> iphone]. Various testers found running times of over 7 hours, among other things.

Many people were a bit disappointed after it became known that the iPad mini does not come with the [Retina-Dispay-> retina-display] that is known from the iPad 4 and iPhone 5. The display of the iPad mini has a higher resolution than that of the old iPad, but you can clearly see the podium in the text on curves that you can no longer see on the retina display. Otherwise, the display is still quite decent.

There are several ways to buy an iPad mini. However, we are fans of Amazon and mostly use their offers:
